Why water is your best kept beauty secret…

Flavoured Water is a great way to enjoy water without it feeling so bland

We all know that drinking water is important for our health. In fact we are told on a daily basis why it is necessary to drink water. Of course it is essential to do so to live, but many people still choose to drink nothing but coffee, fizzy drinks or juice laden with sugar. Don’t get me wrong, I do have other beverages as well, but for those that drink nothing but these drinks, I want to list a few reasons why water should be your first choice.


 

You will have more energy

Yes caffeine is a great energy booster, but it is only a short-term fix. If you find yourself endlessly yawning, struggling to stay awake at your desk or even dozing off after only a few hours of being awake, you need to add more water into your routine. I find that when you wake up, the first step out of bed should be to have a glass of water or even boiled water with some lemon. It’s the best way to start your day off right, and start hydrating your body for the day ahead. I’m not someone who will have lemon water on a daily basis, but a glass of water before breakfast is simple and something we should all be doing.


Your skin will thank you

I once had the unfortunate luck of coming down with tonsillitis. Having to deal with this meant that for a solid week at least I was pretty much surviving on water, water and the occasional soup. Everything I tried to eat hurt my throat, whether it was mashed banana, porridge or yoghurt. Therefore, in the end I gave up trying and spent my days in bed drinking water none stop.  Once I was back to normal, I returned to work with a lot of my colleagues complimenting me on how good my skin looked. This was purely down to my body having a lot more water than even I would normally drink. I’m certainly not suggesting replacing meals with bottles of water, but increasing the amount you drink even by an extra two glasses will work wonders for your skin.


Your health will improve

Water doesn’t just benefit your skin, but every part of your body. Drinking water is beneficial for your hair, your organs, skin and gets you feeling far more energised. I think half the battle of eating healthier, working out and making healthier choices is how you begin your day or your week. That glass of water you start your day with, will lead to another glass and another, before you know it those other drinks you once craved, will be less thirst quenching with every sip!


Your sugar cravings will decrease

A big change you will also see, is just how much your cravings will change for those other drinks you once relied upon. Sugar is addictive, and the more you consume, the more you crave. Switching your drinks from fizzy to water is going to change those cravings completely. By drinking more water you will also feel less slumps of tiredness and therefore less chance of reaching for a quick sugar fix. Not only this, but a glass of tap water is far better for your bank balance than constantly purchasing endless bottles or cans of drinks.

Thank you for reading everyone! Let me know how you add more water into your daily routine.
